Rountree sets BOE campaign kickoff

Amber Rountree
Knox County School Board candidate Amber Rountree, who is running for the District 9 seat, officially announced her candidacy today (although she had already set up her website).

Rountree, a librarian at Halls Elementary, also said today that she will host her kickoff and first fundraiser on March 4 at the Roundup from 5:30-7:30 p.m. You can find the complete release right smack here.

Rountree is challenging incumbent Pam Trainor in the May non-partisan primary. (A general election if needed will be held in August.) District 9 comprises South Knoxville.

As always, if you’re running for office, shoot stuff my way and I’ll post it. The deadline to qualify for county races is noon Thursday.
